New Meet The Creators post, this time I was honoured to ask the questions to serial videographer and Youtuber OnlyJustLucy. I first got introduced to Lucy on a compilation video she made for Gary Vaynerchuk and then again with a Belfast edit showing off her version of the city. I love seeing how different people view the same things and especially in somewhere as small as Belfast.
We all love creating things but there is only so much time in a day to get things done.
